Beau Soleil is one of the oldest private boarding schools in Switzerland. Located in a beautiful and safe alpine location and offering a genuinely international education experience, they provide a full boarding education for students aged between 11-18 years old and who come from around the world.

Exciting experiences both inside and outside of the classroom — from extended curriculum days, to educational trips across the world, full-school challenges—help our students to develop a greater understanding and appreciation of the world around them and to develop skills including team work, collaboration and resilience, important for their future.

The complex is equipped with modern sports facilities, a music hall, a theater and a lab.

Classes are provided during the week from 8:00 to 15:30

Students spend their weekend visiting Lausanne, Geneva and art programs such as visiting castles, cinema, museums, exhibitions and recreational programs such as snowboarding and travel.
